Background and Brief Description Section 306 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 242k), as amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human Services (DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect statistics on ‘‘family formation, growth, and dissolution,’’ as well as ‘‘determinants of health’’ and ‘‘utilization of health care’’ in the United States. This information collection request includes the data collection in 2022–2024 for the continuous National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG). The NSFG was conducted periodically between 1973 and 2002, continuously in 2006–2010, and after a break of 15 months, continuously in PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2011–2019, by the National Center for Health Statistics, CDC (CDC/NCHS). The response rate during the 2011–2019 data collection period ranged from 64.5– 74.0%, and the cumulative response rate for this eight-year fieldwork period was 67.7%. The NSFG program produces descriptive statistics which document factors associated with birth and pregnancy rates, including contraception, infertility, marriage, cohabitation, and sexual activity, in the US household population 15–49 years (15–44 prior to 2015), as well as behaviors that affect the risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STD). The survey also disseminates statistics on the medical care associated with contraception, infertility, pregnancy, and related health conditions. NSFG data users include the DHHS programs that fund the survey, including CDC/NCHS and 11 others within the Department of Health and Human Services: • Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and Human Development (NIH/NICHD) • Office of Population Affairs (OPA) • Children’s Bureau in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF/CB) • Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (ACF/CB) • Office on Women’s Health (OASH/ OWH) • CDC’s Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (CDC/NCHHSTP/DHAP) • CDC’s Division of STD Prevention (CDC/NCHHSTP/DSTDP) • CDC’s Division of Adolescent and School Health (CDC/NCHHSTP/ DASH) • CDC’s Division of Reproductive Health (CDC/NCCDPHP/DRH) • CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (CDC/NCCDPHP/DCPC) • CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention (CDC/NCIPC/DVP) The NSFG is also used by state and local governments (primarily for benchmarking to national data); private research and action organizations focused on men’s and women’s health, child well-being, and marriage and the E:\FR\FM\17SEN1.SGM 17SEN1 51897 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 178 / Friday, September 17, 2021 / Notices family; academic researchers in the social and public health sciences; journalists, and many others. CDC requests OMB approval to reinstate NSFG data collection for three years, with changes. Each year, about 13,500 households will be screened, with about 5,000 participants interviewed annually. Interviews are expected to average 50 minutes for males and 75 minutes for females. Proposed changes include streamlining information collection content in some sections as well as adding a limited number of new questions, including questions about childhood experiences that may impact fertility and health outcomes in adulthood. Approximately 10% of respondents will be asked to participate in a brief verification process. Responses to the NSFG are confidential. In addition, CDC plans to conduct several methodological studies designed to improve the efficiency and validity of NSFG data collection for the purposes described above. These include a test of face-to-face interview mode compared to multi-mode participation that also includes a web-based survey component; test of an electronic life history calendar; enhanced introductory and reminder emails to increase response rate; and collection of auxiliary information to reduce nonresponse bias or improve nonresponse bias estimation. Participation is voluntary, and there is no cost to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized time burden to respondents is 6,122 hours.

These studies may be used to collect information related to foundational research informing message development or the formative pretesting of tobacco communication messages and other materials directed at consumers. This type of research involves: (1) Assessing audience knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, and other characteristics for the purpose of determining the need for and developing health messages, communication strategies, and public information programs; (2) pretesting these health messages, strategies, and program components while they are in developmental form to assess audience E:\FR\FM\17SEN1.SGM 17SEN1

0314, Exp. 06/30/2021)--Reinstatement with Change--National Center for 
Health Statistics (NCHS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 
(CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Section 306 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 
242k), as amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human 
Services (DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect statistics on 
``family formation, growth, and dissolution,'' as well as 
``determinants of health'' and ``utilization of health care'' in the 
United States. This information collection request includes the data 
collection in 2022-2024 for the continuous National Survey of Family 
Growth (NSFG).
    The NSFG was conducted periodically between 1973 and 2002, 
continuously in 2006-2010, and after a break of 15 months, continuously 
in 2011-2019, by the National Center for Health Statistics, CDC (CDC/
NCHS). The response rate during the 2011-2019 data collection period 
ranged from 64.5-74.0%, and the cumulative response rate for this 
eight-year fieldwork period was 67.7%.

2015), as well as behaviors that affect the risk of HIV and other 
sexually transmitted diseases (STD). The survey also disseminates 
statistics on the medical care associated with contraception, 
infertility, pregnancy, and related health conditions.
    NSFG data users include the DHHS programs that fund the survey, 
including CDC/NCHS and 11 others within the Department of Health and 
Human Services:

 Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and 
Human Development (NIH/NICHD)

DASH)
 CDC's Division of Reproductive Health (CDC/NCCDPHP/DRH)
 CDC's Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (CDC/NCCDPHP/
DCPC)
 CDC's Division of Violence Prevention (CDC/NCIPC/DVP)

    The NSFG is also used by state and local governments (primarily for 
benchmarking to national data); private research and action 
organizations focused on men's and women's health, child well-being, 
and marriage and the
